“You are not to present yourself for Holy Communion… until such time as you publicly repudiate your advocacy for the legitimacy of abortion…”
Pelosi is one of several leading Democrat shysters who ardently support and promote abortion while claiming to be “devout Roman Catholics.” Prominent among them are “President” (LOL) Joe Biden and “Climate Change Czar” John Kerry, who was almost president. Like Pelosi, they have a fetish for abortion and have always funded and supported it.
So far, American bishops (with a few exceptions) have not insisted that politicians who cash in on being Catholic actually follow Catholic teachings–or at least not blatantly ignore them.
We salute Archbishop Cordileone for doing what all the bishops should have done.
Organized Atheism made its usual threat to sue the school district if anyone dared mention the names of God or Jesus Christ during the graduation ceremony. School officials caved–but the senior class didn’t. As they had done at ELHS for some 70 years, the students sang The Lord’s Prayer. And nobody went to jail.
Who knows what high school graduations will look like after a year of COVID quarantine, only recently lifted?
Leftids are beside themselves over the impending Supreme Court ruling to strike down Roe v. Wade. Abortion is a sacrament to them. Killing babies is “a woman’s right to choose.” Etc., etc.
Now they want to protest the ruling, which hasn’t yet been handed down but only leaked. And they think the American people are with them, big-time. They think America wants unrestrained abortion.
So what will they do to persuade the people to vote their way–Democrat, in case you really had to ask–in the midterm elections this year?
Ooh-ooh, I know! (waves hand frantically)
Disrupt the Mother’s Day mass at your nearest Catholic Church! Insult Mom and Jesus at the same time! Oh–and make sure to wear your Hand-Made’s Tail costume when you do it. Everybody loved that movie!
I wish I could ask someone: Do libs really think this will work–or are they just so passionately in love with being angry and hating all the time that they don’t really care if they win or lose the fight, as long as there’s a fight and they can bite somebody?
And I think we can safely assume they’re not exactly high on motherhood.
I do believe the Church should play a role in politics, but politics alone is not the answer. It’s so easy for politics to corrupt God’s people. And how likely are political actors to keep their promises?
Chalcedon has been preaching this for decades: We, God’s servants, are called to work for Christ’s Kingdom–with or without political support. None of this “go along to get along,” no more sacrificing the integrity of our message in return for “a place at the table.”
This book is strong on the politics, and even stronger on the authors’ personal experiences: but we’re going to need more than politics to beat back the heathen. Faith, courage, wisdom, prayer and God’s word… and plenty of hard work that’s been left undone for way too long.
Rushdoony was concerned, 30 years ago, with what he saw as the Church’s drift into irrelevance; and this, he said, was not the world’s fault but the Church’s–“the church did it to itself.”
Our faith, he said, must rest on Jesus Christ the King of kings: “To believe anything less is not to believe in Him.”
The key, for the Church–which is all of us, not just any denomination but all of us, all God’s people–is not to be waiting passively for the rapture, but to be working for Christ’s Kingdom: “Occupy until I come” (Luke 19:13). To this message he devoted his long and productive ministry.
